Lineup!

Post by Ani » Wed Jan 05, 2005 11:28 pm

I'm guessing that most people have seen on the old thread, or heard some way or another that we have been lucky enough to have BLIM, Nubreed, Phil K, and Andy Page volunteer their time and talents. Added to this, we have had an overwhelming response by local DJ's to join the lineup. The problem is, we simply won't have the time for everyone, as much as I would love to have you all on the bill.
Until we confirm a second room, the above mentioned will be the headlining acts in the main room, with some local support.
We are hoping that we can arrange a second room, where we'll have a range of locals mixing, and possibly/ideally some back to back. A tentative list has been made, using the names we think will draw the crowds. The reality is we need to draw the crowd. Without a crowd, no money. No money, no point. Sorry, but with everyone wanting to play (which is no doubt fantastic!) it's the only way to get things happening.

If you are not on the bill, please, we will need your help still to make this happen, in the coming week and on the night. I will update definates soon, after I have talked to the POW.

EDIT: Mainroom:
BLIM, Nubreed, Andy Page, Phil K, Brewster vs Lynt, kombat bass, Fletch & Seven, Blueprint

we're yet to 100% confirm all the dnb acts, but we definately have Kombatt Bass & Beatski. will be trying to confirm Motive & also Lex & Rux.

waiting to hear from The Prince as to whether or not we have the balcony. if so, we can have a shitload more acts, mostly dnb.

press release doesn't need to be that long - max 150 words ... I'd initially go in with lineup/dates/etc early for a mass push ... then email each publication you're interested in getting wider exposure in and give them the personal touch.

NB - if the release doesn't go out by 12 tomorrow chances of it running in any media are really slim.

Just spoke to the POW- once they have the Press Release they can get it to the Herald Sun and etc. So I'll try to let you know who they have contacts with once I know...

Hopefully if the POW hassles the Herald Sun they will give it some editorial space, I didn't have much luck in that regard....
